I’ve been advised by the Secret Chiefs ;) to release this small portion (2 out of 16 pages) of the introduction to Abrahadabra: The Anatomy of the Body of Light ahead of time. This work will be released as a series of volumes. The work is not completed yet, though a huge portion of it has been completed and we’re running way ahead of schedule. It will take some time before it is necessary to complete it. I have not been given a publication schedule yet and I am not allowed to know any other details yet when that date will be set. – Izi

The manual that follows is unique and mysterious. There is nothing like it anywhere in the world, or I would not be compiling it at this time. Its subject matter is so austere and people so apparently oblivious of its principles that I had long ago resigned myself to unraveling its mysteries on my own initiative. There has always seemed to me to be very little point in attempting to solicit any support for this work, since it has been my experience that the very same people and institutions who are the first to tout the importance of new ideas are also the first to undermine them. Finding no organizations I could form any useful alliance with anyway, I resolved that any sufficiently important body of original metaphysical research would have little choice but to evolve by stealth. I have subsequently contented myself with being a free agent exploring a noble model on its own merits, with no social obligations attached.
The situation has changed. Even the remotest of mystics cannot always remain aloof from the troubles that plague his world. Economic opportunism has accrued unprecedented wealth and power through the routine plundering of anything in its path. Suddenly it finds itself caught in a cowardly dilemma – what once seemed only a casual coincidence turns out to be an embedded truth: its very continuance altogether depends upon artificially induced strife and suffering. Corporate thugs are normally a rather stupid lot who until recently never fully appreciated the game they were playing and have only rarely enjoyed the carte blanche sanction of government. With the help of hired tutors they have finally figured it all out so that the economics of disaster are suddenly being perpetrated everywhere with extreme deliberation. Since the 1970’s alone roughly one third of all wildlife on Earth has been pushed to extinction with human populations falling hard on its heels, including whole nations and many millions of people. Synchronous to this stepped-up onslaught against non-essential life forms everywhere has come the systematic dismantling of individual rights and freedoms – the one thing they seem to fear above all others. Armageddon is upon us here and now and its architects are engineering it from the highest levels on down. In the face of this long anticipated evil we are left stunned and disbelieving, while a callous criminal elite pursues its genocidal agenda with murderous precision. I needn’t invent such facts as these. No sane person would believe them if I did.
It appears that the story of humankind’s inalienable birthright must be told sooner than later, whether people are ready to hear it or not. I am, in many respects, reticent to reveal it in advance of its perfected mastery, though it is physically impossible to exploit it for foul purposes. If I do not disclose these facts, there exists a very real possibility that they will fail to be understood in time to make a positive difference of any kind. I also appreciate that many people have been haphazardly seeking out this cosmological master key without necessarily understanding its form. This creates an additional incentive for me to come forward, since I have always felt that a subject matter of this magnitude should be dealt with by as many good minds as could be drawn into it and not be left to be sorted out in tortured isolation. Although it has been the habit of Hermetic Alchemists to keep their esoteric secrets to themselves, there comes a time when even reasonable habits must give way to other prudence. We have entered into the Information Age carrying a great deal of excess baggage.There are players in this drama who have dug their heels in hard against any prospect of conscious evolution, who would (if they could) usher in a great Dark Age instead. In the face of such insidious aggressions, an enhanced self-awareness is inevitably one’s best (and perhaps only) possible defense.
It would be an easy matter for me to play to the popular media in ways it both expects and (more often) demands. I could easily claim to have received the following cosmological blueprint in a dream or a vision or via some alien intelligence from a distant galaxy or any one of a thousand other childish scenarios aimed at bolstering my credibility with those who are unable or unwilling to scrutinize ideas according to their intrinsic merits. There would even be a certain amount of truth in this since I have drawn to powerful spiritual forces in the development of this technology that have almost certainly assisted me in unseen ways. But the bottom line is that what I have arrived at I have arrived at the hard way, through asking a lot of very difficult questions and insisting upon their answers, by taking the risks that needed to be taken and adhering to the rules that needed to be adhered to. The end result is a model of transcendent reality that hides from nothing and has no fear of being scrutinized, built upon falsifiable proofs where other models are built upon hearsay and hand-me-down traditions long ago stripped clean of anything so menial as deductive reasoning.
While the star-theory of human evolutionary potential has actually been with us for a very long time (albeit masked in diverse ways), there has never been a comprehensive accounting of the anatomical properties that could render this anything more than a metaphorical allusion. This manual plugs that fatal gap and goes on to outline a concise methodology of star-body distillation and assimilation. Its value will not diminish over time and no other teaching on earth trumps it. It lays out a comprehensive visualization technique for realizing the Body of Light at levels never before attempted in such a comprehensive manner. It defines what the human *star* is and how it can be brought to bear in human experience on a daily basis. It affords all human beings a tangible model of perfection, which can be seized upon both intellectually and physically. It provides a detailed systemic for analyzing and simulating that supreme perfection, such that all rational people will have some concrete way of confronting it devoid of internal contradictions. It combines *right thinking* with *right action* to such a high degree that it will at first seem utterly impossible to achieve, yet over time will be seen to be so profoundly accessible as to completely overwhelm all other concerns and hesitations. It is a form of meditation principle and practice expressly tailored to the here-and-now, whose immediate relevance to the human condition can be expected to last indefinitely.
The model presented in this manual is not in conflict; neither with itself nor any other viable reality construct of any kind. Its task is to define humankind on a universal scale and nothing less. It will eventually be vindicated as the Philosopher’s Stone, a direct emanation of the wisdom of antiquity come full circle into the present to pave a solid pathway to the future of humankind. Its parallels are identifiable everywhere one might happen to look, yet nowhere is its exact form anywhere to be found. It is the product – not only of a single lifetime – but many generations of intensive self-inspection, stretching all the way back to the roots of civilization, as we know it. It amounts to an expert distillation of the world’s store of esoteric wisdom. It requires no specialized belief system to explore its tenets and is inherently opposed to none.
Ed Note: Aspie types will notice the quote in the picture above which I created for this article is from Liber Tzaddi, but is “misquoted”. It is actually very close to the original text before an editor “corrected” the original. m1thr0s found this to be quite poor form as articles in Class A are never to be altered by human hands and may only be altered through direct contact with a member of A.’.A.’. so high in stature they may be considered beyond the comprehension of even adepts. I could not even locate the original version as I was unclear if it was in the Grady McMurtry reprint of The Holy Books of Thelema called “ΘΕΛΗΜΑ” but I went ahead and altered it by connecting to source – if you are in possession of the original Crowley or McMurtry printing please touch base at firstname.lastname@example.org.
